There is the whole list to change, they could completely revamp the list if they wanted to. The thing is, they don't want to, and because of that the new fossils list will almost without a doubt be either identical, or extremely similar to the old list.

Also, the lists for ID events generally come out on the SOINC site before the rules are sent out to teams. I would hope and expect that lists for both Fossils and Ornithology would come out this month.
Events: Herpetology, Fossils, Entomology, Rocks & Minerals, Ornithology, Ecology
Nationals 2008: 1st in Herpetology
Nationals 2009: 1st in Herpetology, 2nd in Fossils

Usually these lists are the same with between 1-5 replaced.

But there's still a chance they'll completely change it when you least expect it, so I wouldn't stop studying just because you think it will be almost the same as last year.

Im just saying, from my experience, the list usually barely changes.
The previous year had a list very similar to the one used four years ago. The only real differences were less birds, a few more reptiles, the removal of Calymene (trilobite) and Bellerophon (gastropod), and very few other changes.
2009 events:
Fossils: 1st @ reg. 3rd @ states (stupid dinosaurs...) 5th @ nats.
Dynamic: 1st @ reg. 19thish @ states, 18th @ nats
Herpetology (NOT the study of herpes): NA

Cell Bio: 9th @ reg. 18th @ nats
Remote: 6th @ states 3rd @ Nats
Ecology: 5th @ Nats

Well, that's good. At least you won't have to memorize pages of new fossils every year.

That's usually the point of having the limited changes.

Hey, the ornithology list just came out, so shouldn't the Fossils list be coming out just about now?

The only real change is the addition of Jellyfish.
They also changed asteroidea to stelleroidea, which is essentially the same thing, but broader.
